I questioned the outcome of this recipe all the way through! But in the end it was delicious and that's what matters! I used TURKEY kielbasa and served the dish over santa fe rice. We topped it with mozzarella cheese and a few shakes of Cholula hot sauce. Just a big, hearty pile of 'curried YUMMINESS' ! Thanks for helping with dinner tonight, windhorse23!
I can't believe how quick this was. VERY tasty and foolproof. We didn't even eat it with anything, just as is and it was so satisfying. I added a bit of cayenne pepper and a 1/2 teaspoon extra curry powder. I also only had one can of black beans. Perfect amount for a full meal for 2. Thanks so much- this is going to be a regular.
You can’t really mess up this recipe. I browned my kielbasa first. Didn’t have onion (how could that be!), so I used shallots instead. I added one can of black beans and ¾ cup of chicken broth for a saucier consistency and severed over basmati rice. Thanks for a quick and easy recipe that really satisfies.
As the author stated, it does sound like an odd combination, but I love it! I added some cayenne pepper and red chili flakes to make it a bit spicier since I found out that my curry powder is not a pure curry (the ingredients list says, "spices"...so I'm feeling a bit gypped). The recipe is easy, the results are flavorful and delicious, and I will definitely be making black beans and turkey sausage a staple on the grocery list!

I'm a psychotherapist who decided to start cooking creatively after years of resistance. I cook primarily vegetarian but cook with other ingredients when my family complains too much. I'm the mother of 3 sons, two of whom are grown, and I've been married since 1978. I cringe when I think back on the cooking my poor husband valliantly endured when we were first married. I collect cookbooks and frequent the thrift shops in my area for unusual finds. <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/Adopted1smp.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket">
